Karla Sue's story

I'm a born and raised Iowa farm girl and have been canning & preserving since I was old enough to stand on a chair and stir whatever was in the pot. My childhood summers were spent going to family members' homes to harvest, process, butcher, and preserve whatever was needed to make it through the winter. Many of my recipes have been handed down from generation to generation and I've created a few new ones along the way. The name Farm in a Jar comes from me wanting people to feel like they're on the farm when they open & eat a jar of my goodies. When I do markets I love telling people the stories behind many of the recipes and showing them that you really on need a few simple ingredients to make my recipes.
